Ubuntu17.10/version:3.0.0-beta1: converting Flac to MP3: all tags are gone

Bug Description

So I encoded 69 Flac files to Mp3 (VBR setting - normal quality). I then viewed the tags of the output MP3 files using puddletag and all tags (track, album, artist and etc) are all gone.

As another test, I converted the same 69 Flac files to ogg and no issues with the tag. They are all there.

I installed the app via the official Ubuntu repo.


edit: I've experienced this on my desktop/laptop. I've tried 16.04 and 17.10 on both machines. Same results. I believe on 16.04, I got version 2.x

Same thing on 18.04. Soundconverter version 3.0.0.

Found this in debug output:
"id3mux" gstreamer element not found, disabling MP3 tags output.

The id3mux element is found in gst-plugins-bad. Should probably make gstreamer1.0-plugins-bad a dependency on bionic. Installing the package manually fixes the problem.
